Big League Politics spoke exclusively with young conservative rockstar CJ Pearson and his liberal counterpart David Hogg about their upcoming discussion on the Second Amendment and guns in America.

“[Hogg] was doing an “Ask Me Anything” on Twitter so I asked why he refused to debate people with opposing views,” Pearson told BLP.

Here is the exchange:

In response, Hogg told Pearson that he prefers civil discussions to debates, and Pearson invited him to have such a discussion:

“We should talk when March for our lives comes through GA dm me,” Hogg responded.

Pearson told BLP that Hogg has already messaged him on Twitter, and that the pair is working on setting a date for the end of the month in Augusta, GA. There are several topics that Pearson hopes to discuss.

One of those topics is mental health.

“Separating emotion from the issue, should be really be blaming guns, or should we be discussing mental health?” Pearson said. “I want to ask ‘How can you find it within yourself to blame five million law abiding members of the NRA?'”

The pair seems to share a mutual respect.

“I commend him for doing something after the shooting, but is this really the solution?” Pearson said. “Maybe we can find common ground. I hope we can find common ground.”

Hogg spoke with Big League Politics via text message.

When asked if he, too, was hoping to find some common ground with Pearson, he answered affirmatively.

“Yes of course,” Hogg said. “I think we can all agree we want to save lives.”

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
